my ace experience, kink mention, sex mention, thread 

Starting with the clear disclaimer that everyone experiences asexuality differently.

For me, I've always been super open and interested in my kinks. Spoilers, it's mostly TF, and things it's a gateway into, but not exclusively. I just, don't go for sex as an endpoint for engaging them. I'm still attracted to people, and I'm not repulsed by sex at all, I just don't feel any desire to have it. (Also I don't really find genitals appealing.)

Raccoon Stats (2) 

Tail: Raccoon tails are not actually that big or useful. Thus, having a high tail stat means defiance of natural tendency for the sake of expressiveness. The furryness stat.

Soft: How soft and cuddly you are. Raccoons are actually quite affectionate around those they're comfortable with, so being good and comfy to nuzzle into is paramount.

Raccoon Stats (1) 

Thievery: One's ability to make off with things, whether by stealth, cuteness, surprise, or the general weirdness of a raccoon encounter.

Washing: One's ability to clean things with one's weird little hands.

Chittering: One's propensity to make cute little animal sounds when happy.

Mask: Mysteriousness. The mask represents the unknowable, the mystical. The allure of the raccoon.

Introduction 

Hi. My name is Facet, and I'm a raccoon. I'm a little bit of a private person, but always willing to meet new people. I try to promote honest positivity whenever I can; I don't always succeed, but I try.

I'm a kinda-sorta game developer, and a Twitch streamer. I don't stream to make a brand or audience really, I just like fostering a relaxing space and enjoying games with people.

I am agender, asexual, and panromantic. 💜

on negativity and me 

A lot of what makes it a problem is, I tend to inject that negative association into conversations where people are happy with and having fun with that thing. And I just come in and go on about this probably highly disingenuous negative monument I've constructed.

I don't, want to do that. Not just raining on peoples' fun, but also holding too much against something that I might otherwise have reached a point of being able to enjoy.

on negativity and me 

Lately I've started to realize that like, I have this thing where when I feel slighted by something (usually a game,) or otherwise feel it's inaccessible for me or has things that would deter me from trying, I tend to like... Just start amassing whatever negative thoughts I can come up with to attribute to that thing, to the point that I don't care that I can't/won't engage in it any more.

I'm, recognizing this, and trying to sort out that it's not okay.

Tonight's time for more Magi Nation! Oh no, everything is friend-shaped, and I can only fit so many in at once! What am I to do?

Well, I guess there is the whole plot thing, yeah... So, let's keep going, to find even more!

Tonight I'm going to start on a game that's surprisingly well-requested: Magi Nation. The simplest description I can give it is, it's a western take on things like Yu-Gi-Oh. So, kid playing a monster card game, but it's real.

Let's see how it goes!

So this morning I got prescribed medication for ADHD, which is... Something I've been wishing for like decades, but now that I'm here I'm just more anxious, thinking about all the things that can go wrong with new medication, wondering what if it doesn't work, or does something else to me in the process, or...

I just want to have this good thing and be able to feel good about it, is that so much to ask?

You ever just set about a potential major positive change in your livelihood, and feel like trash for it?

Twitch Stream 

Tonight might be on the short end, but we're going to finish up last night's Link's Awakening Randomizer run! I'm kind of walled by no boots, but there's still like... two, places I can check? Here's hoping. D:

Twitch Stream 

Little bit of a late start tonight, but this time we're relaxing with a Link's Awakening randomizer! I'm firmly in "just okay" levels of familiarity here, so please forgive my time-taking.

Either way, it should be a fun night!

More Robotrek time! I guess we're stuck in the past now, chasing someone named after cake, from the planet Choco? I'm so lost.

At least I found The Obligatory Quintet Weapon and I can probably rip everything in half now D:

Twitch Stream 

It's time to get back to Robotrek! There's only one place left on the map, and it's the main base of the Hackers.

Could tonight be the end? Your guess is as good as mine, so let's see how much I can do.

It's "find out a band you like released a new album last year and you just never noticed" day.

happy ramble, FF12 

Game is admittedly pretty guide-recommended if you're doing anything more than just pressing through story, though. There's a lot of completion stuff that's hidden in "not player-friendly ways"

happy ramble, FF12 

I've been replaying FF12 lately, and just remembering how much I like it. There's a bunch of little pain points to high completion stuff that made the first play annoying at points, but knowing what those things are lets me have a much better time now.

It's just making fun class combos and revisiting a lot of neat areas and fun challenges. And the story has pretty neat new context when you understand what some things are alluding too, so it's neat in that way too.

Especially RPGs, honestly. A lot of older RPGs have relatively poor guidance and telegraphing, so people who already know how a game goes aren't likely to understand the struggles of someone trying to figure it out from scratch.

Because it's so ingrained into their memory, they don't even think about how it may come across to someone who doesn't know.

Show thread

A lot of this thought process comes from, like. I blind play a lot of older games on my stream, so I bring a lot of "first look" perspectives to games people may have had close attachments to for decades.

And sometimes it's... I don't want to say "contentious," but there are people more interested in their own attachment to a game, than they are someone else's critiques from a more outsider perspective.

Show thread

I feel like, the first is how it'll perform when it's new, and the latter represents how it'll be remembered.

I feel like the truth of the sweeping "nostalgia glasses" argument has more to do with a game being remembered by people who already know its pain points and are used to how it's aged, and that's why people familiar are more likely to excuse a game's problems, compared to people just playing it for the first time much later.

Show thread

Is a game's blind experience more important than how it plays once you already know how it goes?

Twitch Stream 

It's time to get back into Robotrek! Island mouse-times are over, so it's time to figure out what to do next.

I have a bad feeling about all this, but hopefully it'll work out alright.

Let's make it a good night together.
